[There is a] "The paradigm shift" underway in the U.S. Army and other uniformed services, comparing the traditional focus on training for warfighting skills with more complicated and country-specific missions that troops are now facing in Afghanistan and elsewhere in the coming years....these setting are demanding new things from our young leaders everyday.
John J. Mearsheimer
"Mearsheimer’s masterpiece about great power relations over time. Motivations, goals, strategies, and resources all factor in his theory about these relations. Realism trumps idealism in his view because in the end, a nation’s survival is what really matters."
"This book may be out of print but it covers the development of the German military staff system – and its generals — from its roots in Junker society in 1657 until Hitler destroyed it in 1945. A real gem for those who want to understand our own staff system."
Field-Marshal Viscount William Slim
"The best autobiography by any senior leader of WW II. He is refreshingly self-critical and frank."
"The logical end of any war is the reestablishment of peace and Behrman masterfully tells the story of how the Marshall Plan was crafted and implemented to bring peace to Europe at a time when the Cold War was just beginning."
"O’Neill hits the target with his almost scientific analysis of insurgency, its various types, and supporting strategies. Had US leaders studied this before 2001 we would have fared far better in our subsequent campaigns."
